Fishing Report – Week 7 – Oct. 26 – Nov. 2
Weather: We encountered rain the first two days and sunny conditions the rest of the week.
Temperatures were stable and ranged between 30 and 35C.
River Conditions: Water levels were stable at the beginning of the week and rose mid-week. Sandy beaches were underwater, and lagoons and lakes had high water levels. Tributaries and small jungle creeks dropped a good amount of water.
Fishing Conditions: At the beginning of the week, we had perfect fishing conditions and experienced a lot of action on fly. Most of the fish were on structure on the main river. Lakes and lagoons were not so productive. We had the most success fishing with streamers. Fish were too aggressive to take flies, so slow retrieves were the answer. Water levels forced us to use intermediate and sinking tips most of the time.
